Just after 8 p.m. on April 20, Quincy Police officers responded to 2023 Broadway on a report of a check the well being.

Upon arrival, officers were advised that a neighbor could hear what sounded like a child yelling for help from a basement window of the residence and officers determined a child was located in the basement.

Officers entered the residence and found a five year old boy home alone and locked in the basement.

An investigation then led to the arrest of Tricia Franklin of 2023 Broadway.
